Doughton Park (Meadows)

(One Day Itinerary)

A one day trip through the Highlands reveals the shift from flat plateau to mountain ridges. Experiences are greatly varied. Find yourself in the rolling pastures of Doughton Park (Milepost 240-245) or exploring the Grandfather Mountain corridor (Milepost 295-300) or the rugged Linville Gorge (Milepost 317). A high degree of original Parkway design remains here and you will find mountain cabins in close proximity to magnificent country estates from the early twentieth century.

(Two Day Itinerary)

A two day trip through the Highlands reveals the shift from flat plateau to mountain ridges. Experiences are greatly varied. Find yourself in the rolling pastures of Doughton Park (Milepost 240 – 245) or exploring the Grandfather Mountain corridor (Milepost 295 – 300) or the rugged Linville Gorge (Milepost 317) with a night in North Carolina's High Country of Boone or Blowing Rock. A high degree of original Parkway design remains here and you will find mountain cabins in close proximity to magnificent country estates from the early twentieth century. Bring your hiking shoes in order to take advantage of the trails along Grandfather Mountain and Linville Falls, ending your second day near Spruce Pine. There are lots of opportunities for camping or lodging in Parkway communities.
